All I can say is if the Apple tablet is even half as groundbreaking as the Newton was, then it will change the world (now that the world is ready and the tech has caught up to the dream).


Quite true. I briefly owned a MessagePad 100 when I was in high school (borrowed might be a better term. It was my Dad's). I was impressed with the little gizmo despite it's horrible text recognition limited capabilities. The lack of networking even then, before the age of Wifi, was painful.

I had an Ethernet card and modem for my MP2000. and I was a whiz with the handwriting recognition.
